Looking for alternative media players.

I have vlc installed right now and all though i have used it for a while and love it i want a new media player. The only reason i am considering this is that every once in a while i have memory leaks with vlc. All of sudden it is using a little bit of my ram than bam it starts eating it up. I was considering mpc but unlike vlc i cant turn the volume up past 100 on mpc and on vlc i can turn it up to 200 so i was looking for something that like vlc will allow me to turn my volume up.

    Well, I think you're going about it wrong. Instead of switching to a different player, when most all other players don't compare to VLC (imo), I would rather try to fix the memory problem.

    What kind of videos are you watching? Quality, file size and extension type would be helpful to know.
  4. Mostly anime and tv shows the tv shows are avi format standard hd and the anime are 480p and 720p and are .mkv. I watch .mp4 file videos also sometimes.
  5. Well i was just looking through to see if there were any media players out there that were either better or have something vlc doesnt. Like i said it only happens once in awhile so it is not like happening everytime i use vlc. In fact i am watching a file now and vlc is using about 47,000 killobytes according to task manager.
